Earl was born Nov. 3, 1934, in Durham, to the late Wallace Earl Fowler and Blanche Jones Fowler. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Susan Coignard. Earl lived a life of service dedicated to our country, family, profession, and community. He was a proud veteran and served in the Army, Air Force, and Navy from 1953-1973. Earl was devoted to his family, including wife, Mickey Fowler; daughter, Gayle Long and husband, Mike; grandchildren, Benjamin Bennett, Kimberly Sloop, Heather Adams, Phillip Coignard, Jesse Coignard; and great-grandchildren, Kaleigh Sloop, Kyndal Sloop, and Piper Bennett. He demonstrated commitment to family through unconditional love and support. His life reflected being humble and kind while embracing the opportunity for adventure and giving back to others. Earl's professional service includes retiring from AT&T as a communication technician. His expertise of communications equipment for landline telephone services allowed for better communication with friends and family. Service to the community and fellow veterans are exemplified through volunteer commitments to Richard's Coffee Shop Veterans organization in Mooresville.
